I hope they release a new Studio or signature series because I would buy a pair in a heart beat!
They are suppose to be working on something better that the current Signature.

Default New Paradigm owner!

As you know, I was recently looking into some Paradigms Monitor 7 v6's. I found a pair in Ottawa at a decent price. So the misses and I took a little road trip to and picked them up. Very clean looking speakers, mint even. Only downside, I didn't notice the seller didn't have the spikes/rubber feet on them. So I gotta look those up. Another perk of that road trip, we had lunch at Red Lobsters... There's no Red Lobster in Quebec, so that was nice.

Got home a few hours later and gave them a listen. I really liked what I heard. I put on some of the same cd's I used to test my MA RS6's when I purchased them, more or less. Cranked up Zakk Wylde's Pride & Glory, Norah Jones, Led Zep and ZZ Top. I liked what I heard, different from my RS6's but still nice. So, I went online and searched for a center channel. Figured I could find a CC-190 at a good price. What I found was a local sale for some Paradigm Monitor 9 v6's and a CC-290 v6 in mint condition (9/10). The guy wanted $950 for the three. After a few email exchanges and some negotiating, I got the M9's and CC-290 for $650! I'm happy man... I scored I decent deal I think!

So now I have a pair of Monitor 7 v6's to sell. I'd also like to maybe trade them. Maybe an amp, sub or other speakers (good bookshelf's)... just don't know what yet. Might keep them also, could always use extra speakers in a house!

Thx bud! Haven't given them enough playtime to make a proper comparison between the two. I plan on doing gthat this summer during vacation time. So I will definitely write up something befween the two.

MANIACS!!

Honestly, I didn't think about it. But space is an issue... and I just sold them for an extra $100 last night.

That was a nice little profit you were able to make on those

I like great bookies as surrounds, I think towers are overkill unless you have a very large room. I still get tremendous dynamic range with my Mites as surrounds.

The ADP 590 are indeed great surround speakers, I might take a plunge to go back to a di-bi surround speakers, but I like to listen to music on the bookshelf Mites from time to time, I would do some Totem Lynks.
